This Mock Draft is not intended to rank the players based on ability, but will take into account the yearly ineptitude of Daniel Snyder and The Bills Braintrust (yes, that’s an oxymoron) as well as the annual Oakland Raiders dart toss. We also give you the last five picks at the spot, starting with 2010, along with their draft grade. Click Here for Draft Grading Systempostions_05.png

1
  DE
  Myles Garrett, Texas A&M
  Cleveland Browns
thumb_up_04.png

Garrett comes with questions about his love of the game, but he's a special talent.

If the past is prologue he will be the next Jadeveon Clowney.

Plan B: QB Mitchell Trubisky, QB Desahaun Watson

2   DE
  Solomon Thomas, Stanford
  San Francisco 49ers
thumb_up_04.png

Fantasy outweighs the reality, like a porn star.  Or maybe not.

If the past is prologue he will be the next Michael Bennett.

Plan B: QB Deshaun Watson, S Jamal Adams

3   S
  Jamal Adams, LSU
  Chicago Bears
thumb_up_04.png

He's like a Samurai, he shows no weakness.

If the past is prologue he will be the next Eric Berry.

Plan B: DT Jonathan Allen, CB Marshon Lattimore

4   RB
  Leonard Fournette, LSU
  Jacksonville Jaguars
thumb_up_04.png

The talent is there, but will he be interested enough to be a consistent 1,300 yard per year rusher?

If the past is prologue he will be the next Ricky Williams.

Plan B: LB Reuben Foster, S Malik Hooker

5   QB
  Mitchell Trubisky, North Carolina
  Cleveland Browns (Trade with Tennessee)
thumb_up_04.png

The Browns always find a way to screw things up, and this would do it.  They trade picks 12 and 33 to get the next Mark Sanchez. The Titans would be in perfect position as they can still get a top wide receiver at 12 and then load up with their next few picks.

If the past is prologue he will be the next Mark Sanchez.

Plan B: WR Corey Davis, S Malik Hooker

6   CB
  Marshon Lattimore, Ohio State
  New York Jets
thumb_up_04.png

Certainly a position of need, but how has he become the concensus top corner?

If the past is prologue he will be the next Justin Gilbert.

Plan B: QB Deshaun Watson, S Malik Hooker

7   S
  Malik Hooker, Ohio State
  L.A. Chargers
thumb_up_04.png

One year wonder or budding superstar?

If the past is prologue he will be the next Eric Weddle.

Plan B: LB Reuben Foster, G Forrest Lamp

8   RB
  Christian McAffrey, Stanford
  Carolina Panthers
thumb_up_04.png

He's a great receiver and an explosive play waiting to happen, but how many touches can you give a guy who bench pressed 9 reps at 225 and skipped his Bowl game to avoid injury?

If the past is prologue he will be the next Darren Sproles.

Plan B: WR Corey Davis, CB Marshon Lattimore

9   DE
  Derek Barnett, Tennessee
  Cincinnati Bengals
thumb_up_04.png

Dude broke Reggie White's and the SEC's all time sack record.

If the past is prologue he will be the next Dwight Freeney.

Plan B: RB Leonard Fournette, LB Reuben Foster

10   WR
  Corey Davis, W. Michigan
  Buffalo Bills
thumb_up_04.png

Scuse me while I whip this out.

If the past is prologue he will be the next Dez Bryant.

Plan B: LB Reuben Foster, CB Kevin King

11   DT
  Jonathan Allen, Alabama
  New Orleans Saints
thumb_up_04.png

Injury concerns lead to a fall for Allen.

If the past is prologue he will be the next Geno Atkins.

Plan B: WR Mike Williams, S Jabrill Peppers

12   WR
  Mike Williams, Clemson
  Tennessee Titans (From Cleveland)
thumb_up_04.png

Is he Laquon Treadwell or Keyshawn Johnson?

If the past is prologue he will the next Dwayne Bowe.

Plan B: CB Kevin King, TE O.J. Howard

13   QB
  Deshaun Watson, Clemson
  Arizona Cardinals
thumb_up_04.png

All he does is win games.

If the past is prologue he will be the next Marcus Mariota.

Plan B: LB Haason Reddick, WR John Ross

14   CB
  Kevin King, Washington
  Philadelphia Eagles (from Minnesota)
thumb_up_04.png

Zero touchdowns allowed in his last 28 college games.  

If the past is prologue he will be the next Richard Sherman.

Plan B: RB Dalvin Cook, LB Haason Reddick

15   TE
  O.J. Howard, Alabama
  Indianapolis Colts
thumb_up_04.png

The Colts have more needs than Kim Kardashian, so naturally they draft a tight end.

If the past is prologue he will be the next Greg Olsen.

Plan B: S Obi Melifonwu, RB, Dalvin Cook

16   RB
  Dalvin Cook, Florida State
  Baltimore Ravens
 

Run, pass, his foot's on the gas.

If the past is prologue he will be the next Jamaal Charles.

Plan B: WR Mike Williams, CB Kevin King
